Norwegian thrashers DEAD TROOPER have been rejoined by bassist Andreas Paulsen (LEFT AMONG THE LIVING, ARCHON). "Nico Benz, who worked as a session bass player, did not turn out to fit for the job," the band write in a press release. "So now the band is Are Sorknes (JUJ, GREIGH, HENKI WINKI), Birger Larsen (JUJ), Morten Müller (HJALLARHORN) and Paulsen. The boys are looking forward to play a lot of shows, and are currently working on new material."

DEAD TROOPER recently released two clips from their upcoming EP, "Spiritual Funeral", at their official web site. The songs are being described by the band as "a mix of SLAYER and old SEPULTURA, with death metal influences." No release date for the EP has yet been announced.

As previously reported, JUJ — the project featuring DEAD TROOPER members Are and Birger alongside SUSPERIA vocalist Athera — are planning on recording some new material soon. No further information is available at this time.
